March and April Meeting Recap

March Saponi Chapter Meeting: At the 2019 March Saponi Chapter meeting the chapter had a visit from the 2019 Conclave Chairmen John Sommers and Occoneechee Lodge 104 Vice Chief of Communications Parker Morreissett. We started out with a presentation from John Sommers about the 2019 SR-7B Conclave, then the chapter had a egg toss competition. Other members practice the Pre-Ordeal and Brotherhood Ceremonie so that way they can be ready to preform at Spring Pow-Wow. After the egg toss and ceremonie practice the chapter got to schedule transportation to Spring Pow-Wow and others went and got their pizza. For the game we had a Brotherhood Family Feud to help our Brothers who were seeking the Brotherhood membership in our order. It went great! The March meeting was a lot of fun and many Arrowmen were ready for Spring Pow-Wow, April Chapter Meeting, and the 2019 SR-7B Conclave.

April Saponi Chapter Meeting: At the 2019 April Saponi Chapter meeting, the chapter had a new members pot luck. Where fellow Arrowmen both youth and adults brought food for the chapter meeting to welcome our new brothers into the Order of the Arrow. During the meal, the chapter went through a presentation by our Chapter Chief-Alberto Daniel. All about what opportunities the Order of the Arrow offers. The Order of the Arrow offers great high adventure programs, leadership opportunities, and more! Once the presentation was over the chapter then had a challenge to complete, they had to get into groups of 5 to create a lip sync song for the chapter to preform.

At the meeting, the chapter went through Unit Election Training which was conducted by the Occonechee Lodge Unit Election Chairmen Jessie Shipman(Eluwak Chapter).
